The BJP central leadership is laying more focus on Telangana, in view of the Telangana Assembly elections later this year.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah and party national president JP Nadda are expected to visit the state to address two separate public meetings on 15 and 25 June, respectively.

Shah will address a public meeting on 15 June at Khammam parliamentary constituency, while Nadda will address a meeting on 25 June at Nagarkurnool district.

Public meetings galore

The party has decided to hold the two meetings as part of the Maha Jansampark Abhiyan Yatra to highlight the development initiatives and welfare schemes introduced by the Central government in the last nine years.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to visit Hyderabad soon.

Modi might take part in a roadshow to be organised in the Malkajgiri constituency. One more public meeting is also being planned in the erstwhile Nalgonda district, sources said.

Sources said that the public meetings have been planned with the intention of galvanising the cadre and gearing them up for the Assembly elections.

At the same time, the Centre’s development programmes and welfare schemes introduced in the last nine years would also be highlighted.

Hoping to win in Telangana

Sources said that the BJP central leadership was keen on winning the elections in Telangana after the drubbing it received in last month’s Assembly elections in neighbouring Karnataka.

It doesn’t want to miss any chance to win elections in the state by cashing in on the anti-incumbency factor against the BRS government. Accordingly, the party is planning a series of meetings in Telangana.

Meanwhile, Telangana BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Tuesday demanded that the state government come to the rescue of ration dealers by resolving their long-pending problems.
